Roz McCall takes up post as Scottish Conservative MSP

The Scottish Conservatives are delighted to welcome a new MSP for Mid Scotland and Fife.

Roz McCall, who previously served on Perth and Kinross Council, and stood for the Dunfermline seat at the previous election, takes up the post.

She replaces Dean Lockhart, who is standing down to pursue a new role in business.

 

Roz McCall said: “I am delighted and honoured to join the Scottish Conservative MSPs in Holyrood.

“As an MSP I will work to reverse the erosion of local democracy, to hold the SNP government to account, and to provide alternative, new and imaginative, positive policies to benefit the people of Mid Scotland and Fife, and Scotland as a whole.”

Roz’s arrival follows the usual procedure when a list MSP steps down.

Dean Lockhart, who has served as an MSP since 2016, is taking up a new opportunity with a UK-based business organisation that works with governments, local authorities and third sector bodies to deliver Net Zero targets.

Dean will start his new position with immediate effect.

 

Dean Lockhart said: “It has been an absolute privilege to represent the people and region of Mid Scotland and Fife over the past six years.

 

“Given the vital importance of addressing climate change and delivering on net zero targets, I have decided to accept an offer to join a business organisation that works together with governments, local authorities and third sector bodies, and that will help finance and deliver Net Zero targets across the UK.

 

“I would also like to express my sincere thanks to Douglas Ross for his outstanding leadership and support, and to wish him and all my colleagues all the very best for the future.” 

 

Scottish Conservative Leader Douglas Ross said: “I would like to thank Dean for his sterling work in the parliament, and wish him well in his new venture, where he will continue his work in tackling the challenges of climate change.

 

“I look forward to working with Roz, who will now continue her long-standing efforts to deliver real improvements in people’s daily lives from Holyrood.

“Like the rest of the Scottish Conservative group, she will work tirelessly to hold this SNP administration to account and focus on the real priorities of Scotland’s people.”
